Does nobody else hate Auburn?

I know The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry is considered friendly. Said to be a brotherly type rivalry. Georgia legend Vince Dooley played at Auburn. Auburn legend Pat Dye played at Georgia. Everyone has a cousin or an aunt or someone somewhere in their family who is a Tiger fan. I got an uncle. Great, great man. I look up to him as much as anyone in my life.

All that being said, I truly hate Auburn. It's not that I dislike them, I despise them. There, I said it. It feels good too. Go to their campus some random time and just look around. You will not find a "big" university in the country with more students that have more hats from other schools. Georgia, Kentucky, Florida Alabama etc etc, the list goes on. Auburn is everyone's backup school. The one you go to if you can't get into your favorite school. Truth hurts.

I've never seen a school with as much overall impressive success in many sports with a bigger inferiority complex either. We are talking Alabama here. They are worse with Bama than Tech people are with Georgia. They are about to run off Tommy Tuberville and he has beaten Bama 6 straight games. One bad year while Saban wins big at Bama and they are running him out. WTF? He's the best thing to happen to Auburn football since Georgia's old basketball coach was on their campus. Look, I'm not a wingnut fan and a lot of my disdain for Auburn is I'm sure directly related to some of the embarrassing loses he has put on Georgia, but the man can flat out win football games. Who are you going to get to coach at Auburn that is even half the coach Tuberville is? I love it. They are imploding from the inside out. It's reminiscent of the Petrino debacle a few years back. Oh, and I do think Auburn was the class of the football world in 2004. About 10 points better than that Southern Cal team at a neutral site. Yep, I believe Auburn got screwed out of a National Title in '04. It couldn't happen to a better school.

Plus, there's always this:

I really gotta hand it to the Redcoats in the above video ... great timing on playing "Georgia on my mind".

Auburn just isn't very good this year. Their offense in inept. Georgia should win this game by 14 or more with ease. Problem is it's The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. This series is so different than all others. Going simply by the history of this series Auburn will win.

Nope. I don't care if we win or lose this game. I respect both schools as bastions of higher learning.

I hate 'em too Bop. Beat AU and Tech every year to top everything off. But I'm also aware of how well the underdog fares in this contest, and that scares me some. But as everyone knows, our Dawgs play well on the road.

"Bastions of higher learning!"

Yeah, never really built up a loathing for the Aubies - I've only got so much hate to go around and I reserve it for UF, UT and GT. And now SC.

That video though, makes me think...

well well well.....................
maybe someone out there that hates the cow college as much as I do! Having grown up during the heyday of Alabama Football and enduring "those people" for the past 6 years (nevermind we had a 9 year run) I am on cloud 9 these days......we finally brought in a coach that will bring us back to where we should be. Sorry your "blackout" was cancelled by ALABAMA POWER this past season.
ROLL M-fin TIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
